Cat ELC™ Coolant

 Cat® ELC™ Coolant

Extended Life Coolant for Caterpillar and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) diesel and gasoline engines.

Recommended Use

Cat ELC meets or exceeds the requirements of the following specifications and guidelines:

  • Cat EC-1
  • TMC RP-329
  • TMC RP-338
  • ASTM D-3306
  • ASTM D-6210
  • SAE J1034

Cat ELC also meets the performance requirements of Cummins, Detroit Diesel, International, Mack and Volvo.

Advantages of ELC

Cat ELC is developed, tested and approved by Caterpillar to meet the same high standards as all genuine Cat parts.

  • Factory-Fill: ELC is used as standard factory-fill for all Cat machine cooling systems.
  • Lower Maintenance Costs: ELC reduces engine coolant and additive costs by as much as 500% compared to conventional coolants. It eliminates the need for supplemental coolant additives, extends coolant change-out intervals and reduces disposal requirements
  • Advanced Metal Protection: ELC incorporates an advanced formula technology with organic acid additive corrosion inhibitors, such as a combination of mono- and dicarboxylates for maximum protection of copper, solder, brass, steel, cast iron and aluminum.

S•O•SSM Services for Early Problem Detection

Protect your investment with Cat S•O•SSM Coolant Analysis, the ultimate detection and diagnostic tool for your engines. We recommend S•O•SSM Level 1 Coolant Analysis according to the engine’s Operation and Maintenance Manual, and S•O•SSM Level 2 Coolant Analysis annually for all your Cat equipment.

Cat ELC Extender for Longer Life

  • Exceeds Cat EC-1 performance requirements
  • Protects against cylinder liner/block pitting and cavitation erosion
  • Should be added at 500,000 km (300,000 miles) for Cat powered on-highway trucks and 6,000 hours for commercial engines
  • Extender is only necessary once during the life of the coolant
  • Ensures Cat ELC performance to 1,000,000 km (600,000 miles) or 12,000 hours

ELC Extender and Flush Intervals

Cat ELC Extender should be added after 6,000 hours or 300,000 miles (500,000 km) of operation. The system should be drained and flushed with clean water after 12,000 hours or 600,000 miles (1,000,000 km). No cleaning agents are needed. If S•O•SSM Services are used regularly, safe operation with Cat ELC may extend beyond 12,000 hours.
